African American teachers in our schools provide role models for our students, and opportunities for all students to learn about ethnic, racial, and cultural identity. We work actively to increase our pool of teachers from underrepresented groups and look forward to continuing to work with you to further this common goal.

—Dr. Rosa S. Atkins,
Charlottesville Superintendent of Schools
Our mission is to recruit, support, develop, and retain a cadre of African American teachers to serve the schools of Charlottesville and Albemarle County.
